With over 100 acres spread across the Pomfret and West Hartford line, this reproduction Colonial built by renowned craftsman Doug Gest provides the best of both worlds for those seeking honest Vermont charm and the comfort of modern amenities, systems and conveniences. The classic Saltbox was constructed in 1998 in a location chosen by the owners for its proximity to the best of the Upper Valley. The house sits on 17 acres of countryside bordering the protected Appalachian Trail corridor and a large barn with caretaker's apartment is across the street on the additional 86 acres. Outside are stone walls and terrace, over 250 trees, ornamental gardens, water features, espaliers, a gazebo, firepit and other charms too numerous to mention. Inside features varied width hand planed wide plank flooring, hand planed doors with authentic period hardware, period moldings, raised panels and built-ins, Rumford style fireplaces and oversized living spaces that create a feeling of casual, elegant comfort. The heart of the home is the great room which encompasses the kitchen as well as the dining and informal living areas. A large formal dining room and a double living room open to an inviting screened-in porch overlooking the entrance to the formal gardens. A first floor master bedroom suite makes up the south end of the house. A covered breezeway leads you to the post and beam barn that creates a dramatic two and a half story three car garage. Residence located in West Hartford.
